One of the most highly-anticipated festivals of the summer, Festival d'été de Québec (FEQ) has surprised fans by releasing its complete 2020 lineup one month earlier than last year's reveal. The likes of Rage Against The Machine, 5 Seconds Of Summer, Charlie Puth, Halsey, and Alanis Morissette (!!!) will perform across three outdoor and one indoor stage in Quebec City this summer. Pennywise, Bleu Jeans Bleu, Jack Johnson, Marshmello, and Half Moon Run are also on the new lineup.
The announcement comes after an exciting few weeks of new summer programming for some of the most popular festivals in the province.
In January, Osheaga announced that it would finally bring Lizzo to Montreal along with Kendrick Lamar.
Not to be outdone, the hip-hop and rap event Metro Metro revealed 2020 headliners including Travis Scott and 50 Cent.
îleSoniq followed up at the end of February, promising none other than Tiësto, Deadmau5, and even Sean Paul.
After a rainy 2019 edition left some fans disappointed, FEQ is hitting hard in 2020.
See the video reveal of the lineup below.
11-day passes are now on sale for $110 — a steal considering the perhaps inflated prices of its rival festivals.
"Every year, the Festival d’été attracts over an average of 325,000 festival-goers to Quebec City's historic district for concerts by international superstars and top new talent," FEQ states on its website.
"250 shows, 10 venues and 11 days of music make the Festival d’été de Québec one of Canada's biggest music festivals."
"There’s music for everyone: rock, folk, hip-hop, electro, French song, jazz, world music and much more!"
"Located on the historic Plains of Abraham battlefield, the" festival "site boasts North America's biggest self-supporting stage and has room for 80,000 spectators."
"If music is the core of the event, the popular street performers on Saint-Jean St., one of the city's oldest and busiest streets, and a host of fun family activities add a colourful accent to the celebrations."
